The purpose of a Preventive Maintenance Plan is to keep your HVAC system up and running with no surprise breakdowns, while operating at top efficiency. It’s easy to forget about your HVAC system and neglect it because you rarely see it face to face. Imagine doing the same with your car. If you never change the oil or do maintenance on your car until a check-engine light comes on, you can’t expect it to last. Your HVAC system is the same way. Your mechanical system is a very complicated piece of equipment that is subject to breakdowns and needs repairs. Lack of a Preventive Maintenance Plan can lead to premature equipment failure, poor indoor air quality, an assortment of other problems, and usually increased energy and maintenance costs. A neglected system slowly loses its ability to keep your facility comfortable at the same level of efficiency it once did. Just as a car tune-up delivers better gas mileage.
One of the largest advantages to having a good HVAC Preventive Maintenance Plan is that it can minimize the amount of reactive / emergency repairs that need to be made over time. A Preventive Maintenance Plan helps to extend the expected life of your mechanical equipment by keeping it clean, and ensuring it continues to operate properly. It also alerts you of potential problems before a failure occurs since inspection of the equipment is included in the Preventive Maintenance Plan. By addressing minor issues before they become catastrophic failures can save you time and money and will allow you to focus on your core business.
Having a good Preventive Maintenance Plan eliminates unexpected downtime, loss of revenue and unplanned cost of repair. Repair costs will be higher without a Preventive Maintenance Plan due to overtime required to get repairs done on an emergency basis, and the need for parts to be expedited to the site for repair.
Properly maintaining a mechanical system is essential to extending the overall life expectancy of your equipment. Our Preventive Maintenance Plans are designed to provide regularly scheduled maintenance check-ups and energy audits for your building. We will conduct a thorough analysis of your building’s mechanical systems, put together an equipment condition report on your mechanical system and provide a detailed report on the status.
